Legally Binding Digital Contracts for Security Debut
Jason Knott · December 29, 2011

It was only a matter of time before digital alarm contracts could be created that would be legally binding for your security clients.

DFI Software out of Saskatchewan, Canada is the first to bring these to the market, via Tri-Ed/Northern Video Distribution.

DFI’s Digital Contract software allows security companies to produce professional, legally binding contracts and agreements while increasing profits, streamlining their businesses and improving efficiencies.

Digital Contract offers dealers and integrators customizable features to help capture and bind legal signatures to their agreements. The software’s Pay Now feature reduces accounts receivable and enables sales staff and technicians to process credit card and debit payments, as well as credit approvals, on-the-spot for immediate authorization.

Digital Contract also offers a Panel & Peripheral Compatibility Matrix that includes the top-selling alarm panels, minimizing the traditional learning curve for staff to ensure the right product is sold and cut down on hardware incompatibility issues. The Data Control Fields in the contract captures accurate customer information to eliminate the need for monitoring stations to interpret hand-written details which can lead to false dispatches and liability issues.

DFI Software director of sales Rod Donison calls the software “game-changing.”
